Customer insist on bold text face


I am trying to design a book for a customer. It's non-fiction, perhaps one or two images, otherwise it's text with maybe two levels of hierarchy. The body text alternates between quoting from an old religious text and explanatory comments. Sometimes these alternations stretch over a page or more, sometimes they're only a line or two.

For the body text, the latest proposal was to alternate between normal and italic of the same type and weight, a solution which I found comfortable to read. Setting the old religious text a little "poem style" (indented, italic, ragged right) and the explanatory comment as just reading text (no indent, normal, justified) I found quite pleasing.

Looking for recomendations for "Italian Script," the clincher is that it needs to be bold enough for broadcast


Hello. First post here on Typophile!
I'm looking for a versatile script font that is feels Italian (maybe a little handwritten, but not brushed). While that doesn't seem too bad add the additional asks of: bold, skewing towards modern and non-rustic. Eventually, this will be seen in print and broadcast.
